Our sailing school is continuing to grow. Last year we had a great enrolment with well over 100 sailors enrolled in the youth sailing program. Many of the four sailing sessions were completely full, thus I encourage you to get your registration in early! We introduced some new sailboats to the program last year and are fortunate enough to add a couple of new boats again for this upcoming season. The addition of new boats will allow us to continue to offer the premiere sailing program while advancing towards the future.
The Brockville Yacht Club is proud to announce the return of an exceptional instructor team!Emily Reid, Sarah Reid, Jamie Barret and Brett Duffy all be returning from last year. We look forward to another great year as the instructors are anxious to meet all the new and returning students. Heres to blue skies and steady winds!
